Saturn Return – The Instigator of Change

by Courtney Somer

Both my friends & I had a distinct feeling of unease in regards to life right around the age of 28. It felt like a mid-life crisis, without the sports cars or younger mates, but nothing felt quite right and a variety of deeper questions set in. Was I in the right job and relationship? What was my plan for my life? Was I officially moving out of youth and into adulthood? Thankfully, I was introduced to the concept of the Saturn return.

7 Ways to Stop Complaining

by Courtney Somer

Ask Abdi: How Do I Move Out Of A State Of Panic And Into A Place Of Ease?

by Abdi Assadi

Question: I just read your last post “why would we rather stay stuck” and I have some further questions on this. The terror you spoke of is something that I am slowly unravelling in my life. I have always been challenged by anxiety, particularly social anxiety but it hasn’t been until this summer that I have realized the true extent of it.

Living in Wonder

by Abdi Assadi

There is a lot of talk about wonder, joy, beauty and magic. These words and more importantly their experience are connected and intersect one another. The one thing they all have in common is that they can only be experienced when we are in the moment. Which any of us rarely are. Being present to the moment is in fact one of the most difficult things we can do.

Lately, there has been a lot of gossip swirling around, and it seems to be affecting a lot of people I know. It got me to thinking, why do people gossip? What do they get from it? Why do we pass on the negative news, more so then the positive? And, how does this affect us energetically?

Here’s a guide on how to do them, the Yogic way, and what they mean.
